The Principle of Revolution A revolution is a complete & forcible overthrow and replacement of that which is oppressing you; a sudden, complete, or radical change in something. A revolution is also a 360 degree turn back to a starting point. You have to turn 180 degrees before you can complete a 360 degree turn. Repentance is a 180 degree turn from that which oppresses you. The 360 degree turn takes place when you go back to oppression and bring others out of what Jesus deilvered you from.
